Scott Freid

City Partner Austin, Cencor Realty

“From growing up in a small town to traveling the world, Chris starts each assignment with great perspective. His East Texas roots bring an affable nature that makes communication and collaboration uncomplicated and effortless. At the same time, his passion and expertise in both historical and modern forms of architecture aid him in bringing a distinct design to each client. Another great quality that Chris possesses is his lack of need to answer my questions immediately. He always takes the time to think before he reacts.”
